Sculptural Accessories: Botanicals

Posted by on Mar 28, 2012 in Blog, In the Studio

Taking inspiration from nature, Tom’s flowers are a Corbin hybrid with expressive gestures and sunny dispositionsno watering required. Inspired by the new sculptural accessory, Flower Study, Tom has created 3 new “Botanicals” shown in progress below.
